I love this mini trail, scenic, safe, and beautiful. I like how it is exactly 1 mile around, because I can decide during the hike how long I want to go for (looping few or many times) versus a longer loop/out and back where you are stuck doing the entire length. Halfway around you can take the hillside (incline) or the lake perimeter (flat). There is cell service here so I often find myself having looped 7 or so times on the flat route while looking at my phone, easy way to get the steps in!

Short walk around a lake. Google maps was not very helpful getting me there. It kept taking me to the CA-13S exit ramp and telling me I had arrived. I did this trail and Shepherd Canyon back to back.
